Vernacular

From 2013 through to the middle of 2015, Philip Smith worked on a book project with David Straight, concerning a subject that is of central importance to O2 Landscapes' work; vernacular (or everyday) landscapes. The book, 'Vernacular', was released in the spring of 2015. Within this website, David and I explain more about some of the objects and landscapes that we encountered as part of our travels, as well as describing aspects of what we explored within the book.

Stevens Lawson Architects

We have had the good fortune to work with Stevens Lawson Architects on a number of houses, in different parts of the country. We are particularly interested in the place that context plays in the work of Stevens Lawson (both in terms of New Zealand's culture and landscape) - as context is an important driver behind our work.

Oratia Native Plant Nursery

Leaders in the propagation and trialling of native species (particularly endangered species) for introduction to amenity horticulture. O2 Landscapes works in with Oratia Native Plant Nursery by using many of these species in our projects. A great proportion have shown considerable potential for use in gardens.

Titoki Nursery

Nelson plantsman, Tim Le Gros, runs one of the most interesting native nurseries in the country, specialising mostly in the propagation of the Nelson province's distinctive flora (in addition to cultivating many Marlborough plants, and certain species from outside the upper South Island). We have worked in closely with Tim on a Nelson project, as well as utilising Titoki Nursery's plants on projects elsewhere in the country.

New Zealand Plant Conservation Network

The NZPCN network was formed in recent years to bring more attention to New Zealand's threatened plant species. Quite apart from the work carried out by the Network, the main reason that people should visit this website is that it is one of the best online resources about native plants. Individual plant profile sheets provide information on the habitat, threat status and cultivation requirements of a large (and growing) number of species. One of the best features of the website is the huge range of photos of plants, many of which show them within their natural habitat. Sometimes, images like these can provide greater understanding than written accounts.

Yaku Nursery

New Zealand's leading experts on the many beautiful varieties of Clematis. Yaku Nursery joined with O2 Landscapes in presenting the display garden 'Middle Ground : A New Zealand flower garden' at the 2004 Ellerslie Flower Show. Per and Merry Sorensen are plantspeople in the traditional mould, who grow a wide array of unusual varieties that should be better known and utilised (not just a strictly commercial selection). In addition to a significant range of large-flowered varieties, Per holds a special interest in varieties derived off C. viticella and C. texensis, both of which thrive better in the warmer conditions of northern New Zealand. O2 Landscapes shares this interest, and we endeavour to use these floriferous varieties to enliven structural plantings of native trees and shrubs.
